The news came in yesterday: Rick Neuheisel is back coaching college football. Neuheisel, you may remember, was last seen in the college ranks in 2003 when he was being fired by Washington for betting in a NCAA Basketball Tourney Pool. He sued for wrongful contract termination and ended up settling for $4.5 million. Of course, Neuheisel was also responsible for a Colorado being placed on a 2 year probationary period regarding some improper conduct concerning recruits, so he has a bit of a shady past.
But so what? So the guy likes to gamble and have a good time and illegally recruit players? Who cares? I predict a National Championship (or 4) for UCLA in the next 5 years...Neuheisel is that damn good.
The only news more exciting than this would be the opening of Wade Boggs' Chicken Emporium.
